We have the same date! Less than 4 weeks. I’m excited, nervous & scared all at once. I’ve been watching various videos online & find them very informative, and in some cases funny!

No regrets from my perspective. Honestly, if I went back in time to a month before surgery, I’d give myself one weekend of food funerals (just not within the 2 week pre-op diet). I know that sounds weird, but there will be times after where “head-hunger” is real even though you could not eat more than a bite or two of whatever you are craving. I have stuck to my eating plan and the restrictions are a huge help but sometimes I do miss a big burger or pizza. Btw, I’ve had burgers and pizza since surgery, just no more than a couple of bites. I’m no self control guru either, it is like I just finished Thanksgiving dinner...I feel so full. Good luck!

Take lots of pics
Measure yourself for times you cant SEE the weight coming off
Take all the time you need to heal
Make sure you focus on loving yourself as cliche as that sounds

      RE: the running/training
      Honestly it started with me just doing laps around the kitchen that first post-op week.
      In a week, I graduated to walking up and down my street, then to walking around the block every day.
      The distance increased, then the speed.
      Then I started running little spurts during my walks, then to alternating 1km runs with 1km walks.
      And now I can do a continuous 10k (which I totally did for the first time this morning...so full of myself about it today, it’s disgusting.)
      Just do something everyday and slowly increase speed and duration, next thing you know you’ll be one of those odd “running people” (who I never understood pre-op, but now totally get, lol)

        Happy Sunday! I like weird people. Normal people are boring! :) I began following you and wanted to know if there are any other members you would recommend? My surgery is 8/29/19 and I want to learn as much as possible. Have a great day and thanks so much for the website.
